TSRI 19th Annual Poster Session



  • On November 10, Heather Volk, PhD, MPH, will speak at the Congressional briefing “Ensuring a Healthy Start for Every Child: How the Environment Influences Health & Development.” This briefing, held in Washington, D.C., will educate attendees on various areas of pediatric research supported by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. Dr. Volk will present her work detailing the effects of air pollution exposure on autism risk and children’s respiratory development.


  • Long Lasting Anti-Hemophilia Factor Safe in Kids
    Children with hemophilia A require three to four infusions each week to prevent bleeding episodes, chronic pain and joint damage. A new, extended therapy combines recombinant factor VIII with a fusion protein that allows the molecule to remain in the circulation longer – translating into a need for less frequent treatment.   


  • Family Income, Parental Education Related to Brain Structure in Children and Adolescents
    Characterizing associations between socioeconomic factors and children’s brain development, a team of investigators reports correlative links between family income and brain structure. Relationships between the brain and family income were strongest in the lowest end of the economic range – suggesting that interventional policies aimed at these children may have the largest societal impact. 


  • First Fully-Implantable Micropacemaker Designed for Fetal Use
    A team of investigators at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the University of Southern California have developed the first fully implantable micropacemaker designed for use in a fetus with complete heart block. The investigators anticipate the first human use of the device in the near future.
